Pruning - Rosa virginiana

Friday 15th Feb
Weather: Cold

I finished pruning the Rosa Glauca, then moved onto Rosa virginiana, a rose that has nice thin elegant red stems which gives it a nice shape. They are very floriferous so a lot was taken out, but they looked better for it. A chance to enhance the red stems as well as helping the plant. There was definitely plenty of flowering stems for the current year. It didn't matter that some of these 'crossed' over because the plant was light & airy enough, especially if it added to aesthetic satisfaction.

Rosa virginiana offcuts - the red really stands out but they have olive green stems too.
